Pardee Lifeline, a system that summons help immediately at the touch of a button, is offering the first month free and free installation until Dec. 31. This is a total savings of $90.50. To take advantage of this offer, call (828) 692-9061 and use coupon code FD6.
Pardee Lifeline has been providing the Lifeline service to Henderson County for over 27 years. The service is ideal for those with high-risk medical conditions, chronic illnesses or individuals with limited mobility. Lifeline offers other services as well, such as a speakerphone function allowing individuals to answer the telephone without using a handheld receiver and the ability to leave reminders of important things to do throughout the day.
“We are proud of the service we provide our elders, which helps them continue living in the homes they love,” says Ron Comeens, Lifeline coordinator for Pardee Hospital. “We are especially driven during this holiday season to help more at-risk elders remain independent, so that they can share in the festivities with their family and friends at home. Holidays should be a time for celebration, not worry.”
Lifeline recently launched the new AutoAlert button featuring the only pendant-style help button that can automatically call for help if a fall is detected and a senior is unable to push his or her help button. Operators are available to answer questions or provide assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Lifeline also retains pertinent health history and information on who to contact in the case of an emergency, when an individual is unable to provide this information.
Subscription to this service is available for a low monthly fee, based on the types of options selected.

A special thanks to Dr. Albers and Anne Campbell for the extra attention to my health and well-being. You are all greatly appreciated. Best wishes in the future growth of your department." - Katherine Fox"Dr. Jones and Wound care staff: I just wanted to thank you so very much for the care you provided my mother. She has been dealing off and on with open sores on her leg for nearly two years. The miraculous treatment you provided healed her antibiotic resistant infection, and her sores are closed. I feel so thankful that there is a treatment out there for her should this occur again. Again, thank you all for most likely saving my mother's leg!" - Sandy Camp
